The zoo is a very good trip for all generations of the family. It is particularly good place for Grandparents to take children. It is also a very nice place to go without children.

This zoo puts the animals first. Big, open enclosures. Beautiful settings. The animals look well cared for and happy. Recommend!

Lots of walking! We were impressed at how far our toddler walked. Many of the things other reviewers said seem to be addressed. No more elephants. My favourite was the river otters in the northern exhibit. It was quiet in early November.

This is a large zoo with lots of various exhibits and large spaces for the animals to roam. My toddler certainly enjoyed himself, especially with the penguins! Clean, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Would recommend to anyone of any age visiting Seattle.

That sounds extremely high, but here's a phone number for them. Or you can just go to their website and I'm sure the information is there. 206.548.2500
